At first distraught and hysterical, Mei loses control of her anger as she sets out to find Bee, and whoever took her.
Born in Oxford, England, Gruff79 was, until recently, a musician in the British Army. A passionate artist, he has produced a great deal of artwork in his spare time. Work began on Hiyama in 2003, following a conversation during which he was asked if he’d ever considered doing comic work, and the book has now grown to span 6 volumes. This dark, often violent portayal of Britain in the not too distant future has, pretty much, taken over his life. Gruff79 now lives in New Zealand.
